Background Checks



Many agencies require fingerprinting background checks during the pre-employment process. At the Meigs County Sheriff's Office, we have the ability to electronically scan fingerprints and submit them to outside agencies for investigation. The fees for the background check are listed below. Please allow about 2-4 business days for processing. To speed up your fingerprinting process, we ask that you print the Background Authorization Form and have it filled out upon arrival at our office.

  • Government Issued Photo Identification Card
  • Address of where you wish the findings to be sent
